Colostrum 120 vegetarian capsules by Douglas Laboratories
Colostrum 120 vegetarian capsules
Colostrum capsules are all-natural, nutraceutical grade colostrum that contains 90 known health-promoting components, including antibodies, immunoglobulins, antioxidants, and growth factors that support the immune system, intestinal tract, and healthy cellular integrity.
After giving birth, a motherâs body produces a special immune and growth-promoting substance that is secreted into her milk. This fluid is produced for only the first 24 hours after giving birth and is called colostrum. This special pre-milk" is integral in providing a wide range of immunological and growth-promoting factors to the offspring. Research provides evidence for the transfer of cytokines, immunoglobulin, growth factors, and maternal immune cells to the newborn via the feeding of colostrum. Bovine colostrum is especially rich in immune factors, amino acids, nucleotides, and growth factors. Some elements are present in higher quantities in bovine colostrum than in human colostrum. Research has shown that supplementation with bovine colostrum is able to positively modulate immune function. Immunoglobins, including IgG, and other proteins such as lactoferrin contained in colostrum are thought to play an important role in this supplementâs ability to defend itself. Bovine colostrum has even been shown to have an important role in supporting gastrointestinal health by stimulating the proliferation of intestinal cells, resulting in healthy intestinal function and mucosal immune protection.
Colostrum is indicated for individuals that desire immune support from natural bovine colostrum.
